Star Trek 4 Development

News of Star Trek 4 officially being in development first surfaced last summer. Producer J.J. Abrams confirmed work on the sequel and revealed it would somehow bring back Chris Hemsworth as George Kirk, the father of James T. Kirk who perished in exciting opening sequence of the first installment of the reboot that established a whole new timeline in the Star Trek universe. Since then all we’ve heard is vague hype about the sequel, and it sounds like the cast is unsure whether it will actually happen.

In a recent interview, Star Trek franchise star Zachary Quinto says that he’s still waiting for the script to be completed, and despite being hopeful that he’ll be able to reprise his role as Mr. Spock, the movie doesn’t seem to have been greenlit yet.

star trek 4 story

Before Star Trek Beyond hit theaters, JJ Abrams revealed that he had an idea for the fourth film in his new series of Star Trek movies that would see Chris Hemsworth reprise his role as George Kirk. Days later, Paramount confirmed the development, announcing that Hemsworth had signed on for the new film. Abrams later claimed that “the reason we made a deal with Chris Hemsworth as soon as we could” was because they have concocted a really “amazing story.” Well Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth agrees, praising the Star Trek 4 pitch on the red carpet of the Golden Globes.

star trek 4 story

It’s something of a ritual by now. The latest entry in a major franchise arrives, but the people behind the film aren’t talking about it. Instead, they’ve already moved on to the next movie, the hypothetical sequel that only exists in a few conversations and on a cocktail napkin or two. The intention is obvious enough: “Go see this one so we can make the next one!”

This currently applies to Star Trek Beyond, which has received overwhelmingly positive praise from critics (our own Ethan Anderton gave it high marks) but isn’t a surefire smash hit. It’s no wonder producer J.J. Abrams is already singing the praises of the recently announced Star Trek 4 – this is a game of confidence and of properly setting expectations and promising that if you go see this one, you’ll get more Chris Hemsworth in the follow-up.

Star Trek 4

UPDATE: Paramount has officially announced that a fourth Star Trek movie is in development and that yes, it will somehow find a way to bring Chris Hemsworth’s George Kirk into the fold. Time travel has played a major role throughout Star Trek‘s 50-year history (heck, it played a major role in the mere existence of these newest movies), so this unlikely reunion is perfectly in line with what has come before. No director is attached yet, but J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay are writing the screenplay. The entire cast is expected to return minus Chekhov, who will be retired from the Enterprise crew following the tragic death of Anton Yelchin. The original article follows below.

We’re still a few days from seeing Star Trek Beyond premiere at San Diego Comic-Con, followed by hitting theaters everywhere late next week (or a bit earlier if you head to the Star Trek marathon at AMC Theatres). While the early buzz is pretty stellar, most of us are still in the dark about what happens in the movie, but now we’re all on even footing when it comes to knowing something about Star Trek 4.

One thing we’ve seen in the trailers for Star Trek Beyond is a hint that Captain Kirk’s arc in the movie is about doing more than living up to the legacy of his heroic father George Kirk, played by Chris Hemsworth before he became Thor, who died in the opening of the 2009 reboot from J.J. Abrams just after Kirk was born. Therefore, it only makes sense that news of the return of Chris Hemsworth to the franchise comes from Abrams as well. Find out more after the jump. Read More »
